Blogiversary and Book Plans! :)

How many would like to have a little PaR-TaY?  I know I could definitely use one with all this hub-hub going on over here!   As you can see by the little box in the right hand side of this page, my Fourth Blogiversary is coming right up and I thought it might be super fun to combine a kind of bloggy party with a “blog-a-thon” of sorts, lol.

You see, we need to kick it into high gear for raising the funds to meet our goal at Kickstarter for the release of the book, Loom Knitting for Little PeopleWe only have 10 more days to go and we have just reached the 50% funded level.  This is terrifically awesome and I wish to share how amazing you all are and a big thank you to all those who have joined in and pre-ordered their signed copy of the book (as well as lots of other fun goodies!).  I just would like to encourage any of you out there that are planning to get your own copy and are waiting until the book is released,  to go ahead and order through our Kickstarter launch.  It would be absolutely marvelous if you could…it could help us meet our goal and get this new book off to an awesome start!  The transaction is made through Amazon Payments and your card will not be charged until August 4th, which is the last possible day to help back the project.

Okay…now for some party plans!  :D

There will be some fun game type activities and I’m going to be whipping up some fun things over here for prizes…we all love that word, right???  I think I’ve already got a pretty good start at some terrific ones!  I’m going to also be working on two new loom knitting projects that will be offered on the day of the celebrations.  One of them will be yet another added incentive to pre-order your book through Kickstarter…the other will be another fun video tutorial surprise!  Remember how we originally did the Scrubby-O project?  We can LAL right here as a group!  Won’t that be fun? :)

As for the project that will be an added incentive to pre-order…

I’d like to introduce you to this absolutely fun, frilly and completely interchangeable:

Sweet Pea Skirt & Hat!

Yes, it is a skirt…

AND a hat!  :D

This was originally sent as an auction item for a very special little girl…you can watch the  video of this fun project package being opened by Kristen with GoodKnit Kisses right here… she demonstrates how to convert it from a hat to a skirt right before your eyes!

This pattern will be given to all those who are pre-ordering and backing the Loom Knitting for Little People launch as a bonus project! :)

You’ve all read about my additional contest prizes that are going to be drawn at the end of the launch here…and now let me make sure you’re aware of the extra special, fantabulistic bonuses being provided by Lynn with Markman Farm Looms!

  4. This is so cute, and I just watched Kristen on GoodnightKisses doing the video for it! I also thought it would be adorable as a doggy skirt, since I don’t have any little ones around right now, but DO have a 6 year old female dachshund! Can’t wait to try this out on her… as a skirt, of course! Will submit pics once it’s completed. Happy LAL, everyone :)
